Before I go, I want to show you this book that I recently received as a gift! (Lucky ME!!) It's called "The New Hexagon" by Katja Marek, a local quilter...and by 'local' I mean, Canadian! :o)
Katja lives in Kamloops, BC and owns the shop, "Katja's Quilt Shoppe" which is located right on the highway going through Kamloops. It's an easy stop for travelers and yes, I have visited the shop but only once. Somehow our traveling times/days just don't correspond with the shop being open...:o(
If you love Hexagon quilts, like I do, then you will love this book! Katja has kicked the hexagon up a notch...she has turned the hexagon shape into a variety of different blocks (see the picture below for one such block)...You put them together and you have formed a type of sampler quilt! Each hexagon is different...all 52 of them!
Fifty Two different Hexagons lends itself nicely to a BOW...one hexagon for each week of the year! Now wouldn't THAT be fun!
As I have said, if you like Hexagon quilts then you might want to add this book to your library! It's a keeper! Not only does it give you a hexagon fix, but Katja provides lots of tips for making English Paper Piecing easy and do-able!
Have a Sunny Sunday and Happy Stitching!~P
